25 May 2014


Monthly subscription boxes are very popular these days, containing anything from beauty products only, to accessories, and healthy products. Today I’d like to share with you my thoughts on the *May edition of the Notox Box;

What They Say:
If you're new to healthy living, want to find non-toxic products, or are overwhelmed by the choices available, this is the box for you!  We hand pick a range of the best natural, clean living products and pack them up in a surprise box for you to enjoy each month.   It has a little bit of everything!  

The box contains 5- 8 products including in a mix of full sized, travel and sample size products. All products are natural, organic, ecofriendly or ethical, organic food, health food or super-foods, natural and organic skincare and beauty products, wellness, eco home or healthy lifestyle products.

RRP: $25 per box – Available from Notox Box
What I Say:
I like the idea of exploring healthier option within both beauty, food, health and home, so I was quite excited when I was asked to trial a Notox box, although I have to be quite honest and admit that I’d never heard of the boxes before, I didn’t really know what to expect.

The box arrived in a standard brown postage box, with no inner box, but really I don’t mind, as I have heaps of those floating around from other beauty subscription boxes.

The box was full to the rim, and quite heavy too, and this is what was inside;

Forbidden Green Rice – Full Size (500g)
I am quite excited about this rice, which is made from organic brown rice infused with bamboo juise to give it a subtle green tea flavour and nutty texture. I have never had anything like it, but eat a lot of rice, so I cannot wait to put this one to the test.

From Japan Organic Green Pea Chips – Full Size (45g)
I’ve never tried pea chips before, but I love the fact that they are high in protein and low in fat too, and they can be can be enjoyed with hummus, dips or salsa- I look forward to trying them out.

Simply Raw Protein Bite – sample size

This mini bar is made with pea protein and the world’s most potent antioxidant fruit, maqui berry, and it is energising and super high in proteins – just what I need when I need an energy fix in the afternoon when I’ve been up numerous times during the night to soothe our little teething boy!

Soothie Foot Bath  - Sample Size
I have to be honest and admit that with a baby, there is not a lot of time to pamper yourself, and one of the things most neglected is my feet – so these magnesium bath flakes that help sore tired and swollen feet are well received – I love a foot bath, and is in high need of one, now I just need to find the time where I can relax!

Australian Bush Flower Essence Hand Cream – Sample Size – 2 x 20ml

I was only expecting to receive one sample tube, so I was pleasantly surprised that there was actually two tubes in the box – one with Evening Rose and one with Citrus Dunamis. These thick creams are intensive creams suitable for soothe and revitalise dry or chapped skin – and they both smell gorgeous and so natural thanks to the natural essences used. I like both, but the citrus one is my favourite as I just cannot go past a good refreshing and zesty scent. And I love hand creams, and have a tube everywhere, from my car, bedside table, handbag, you name it, I always have a hand cream within reach, so these two are a welcome addition!

Probiotic Solutions Cleaning Mop Me Floor Cleaner – Sample Size (50ml)
This is a cleaner made using healthy probiotic bacteria made using food grade ingredients with antioxidants, vitamins and essential oils… hhmmmmm, I never knew my floors needed vitamins! In saying that, I do love the fact that this cleaner is chemical free, especially seeing my 11 month old boy is crawling around on the floor. And it contains among others pink grapefruit and tea tree, which makes it smell fantastic.

The info card only mentions the one product from Probiotic Solutions, but the box also included two more samples from them;

Bathroom Bliss – Sample Size (50ml)
Yet again I love that these products are chemical free, and this one contains zesty ingredients from lemongrass, pink grapefruit and lemon myrtle, which I really like as they just smell so refreshing and clean, so I may actually be enjoying cleaning my bathroom!!

Anytime Anywhere All Purpose Cleaner – Sample Size (50ml)
This All Purpose cleaner also contains lemongrass, pink grapefruit and lemon myrtle, which I am far from complaining about, citrus scents are my favourite, after all. And this little spray bottle has already had a good workout cleaning my little boys table on the highchair, and it has moved into my nappy bag, as the little spray bottle is so handy to have at hand when we are out and about for cleaning highchairs both before use to get rid of any dirt and bacteria, as well as after use to clean up all his mess!

So there you go, the contents on this month’s Notox box.

So what did I think of it…. Was it worth the $25…. In spite of the box being full and heavy, the only full sized products were the rice and the pea chips, neither of which I cannot imagine having a high recommended retail price –and unfortunately the enclosed flyer does not include prices. However, the box contained quite a few deluxe sized samples, including two hand creams, three cleaners, a food bath and a snack bar, which is quite generous, and certainly helps to justify the cost.

And as the box also introduced me to a quite a few different products and brands – actually every single one of them was new to me, I do find it is quite a good way of getting to know and explore new products, and I look forward to testing out every single one of them – so no wastage there either! So if you too are interested in more natural products, then I highly recommend you try out the Notox box, you won’t be disappointed!
